O holy Hecate, I pray you, grant me knowledge of what is hidden in the depths of the cosmos.

Grant me understanding of the secret thoughts of the heart.

Let me know what is concealed within the innermost recesses of the soul.

O holy Hecate, reveal to me the truth of the future.

Show me the way to immortality.

Guide me in the path of the divine.

Lead me into the paths of the stars.

O Hecate, guide, protectress of the dead,

Prayer To Hecate For Protection From Ghosts

O Lady, whose head is crowned with snakes,

Mother of the deep abyss, Protector of the departed,

Queen of the shades, Mistress of the hidden places,

You who know the secrets of every heart,

Queen of necromancy, mistress of witchcraft,

Gracious mother of darkness, most beautiful lady

Protect me from all spirits and entities that seek to harm me.

Spirits must listen to you, for you are their mother,

And they must obey your commands.

I ask you now to protect me as I gaze past the veil.

Hecate as Goddess of Magic

Prayer To Hecate For Magical Protection

O Goddess, most powerful, whose dwelling place is below the earth,

Protect me from the evil eye, which causes blindness,

From witchcraft, which causes death,

From sorcery, which destroys,

From spells, which cause sickness,

From the wiles of those who would destroy my home,

From the malice of envious persons, which leads astray,

From the craftiness of liars, which deceives,

From the envy of friends, which betrays,

From the cunning of thieves, which robs,

From all harm, bad fortune, ill health, and curses,

Grant me protection against all these evils.

Hecate’s Healing Powers

Prayer To Hecate To Learn Herbalism

O blessed Hecate,

Teach me how herbs grow, which herbs heal, and what herbs cause death.

Teach me to know the nature of each plant, whether it grows freely in the open air, or lives within clay pots and beneath ground.

Let me learn the names of every plant, and the way to use it.

May I know the secrets of the divine powers, and may I be able to wield them myself.

All herbs are yours; you know how to use them. You are skilled in healing and in magic.

You know the secret paths to Hades and can take us there.

You know what is harmful and what is beneficial.

You know the secrets of nature and can tell us everything about the gods.

You know how to make potions and poisons.

Your spells are powerful and effective; you can command the spirits of all elements.

You are the mistress of the arts and sciences, the teacher of mankind.

You are the guardian of the gates of death and of the underworld.

You are the helper of mortals and immortals alike.

Bless me, oh mother Hecate. I call upon thee for aid.

  1. Working With Hekate During The Full Moon
  2. Working With Hekate During The Full Moon

    During the full moon, we call upon Hekate to assist us in clearing our past, releasing our fears, and opening ourselves to new possibilities. We ask her to help us gain clarity in our lives, to help us transform our inner worlds, and to allow us to move forward with courage and confidence.

    It is said that Hekate helps us to overcome obstacles and challenges that stand in our way, and to achieve our goals. In addition to being a benevolent Goddess, she is also a fierce warrior. When we summon her, we invite her to help us take charge of our lives, to lead us into battle, and to fight for justice.

    I am an eclectic witch - I've been practicing since 1974. As a student of the occult, working with astrology, tarot cards, runes, and numerology, I found that this was a very comprehensive and well written text on working with Hekate during the full moon. Highly recommended. - Gail Sager

    Great read - a must have for anyone interested in working with the Goddess during the full moon! Highly recommended! - Luis Meyer
